The atmosphere is very diner-like with the counter top, stools and brightly colored trim - though they have plenty of seating at tables on the side. I have eaten here multiple times and have always left full and satisfied.

Most recently I tried their new curry chicken wrap - delicious! The curry is a nice and spicy treat - which is difficult to find in Bermuda. More importantly, the sauce did not appear to be mayonnaise/yogurt based given the thick texture and lack of a creamy taste. Other favorites would have to be the milk shakes (which could feed 2 or 3 people) and the breakfast burrito. And lastly, this restaurant is the most responsibly priced location on the whole island! Food is very expensive here, so any place that offers a great value is going to be high on my list.

Great for families, casual dining, breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a snack. Not far from beaches.

They always do good hamburgers. Staff are friendly and the service is quick and good. The ony negative I have with this place is their recommended service charge on the bills. I think they have a lot of cheek going from 15% to 25%!

If you know what to expect, this is a good choice at a reasonable price (by Bermuda standards). It's a favorite among cabbies, which is a good way to identify a cheap and informal restaurant with decent food. This restaurant in the style of a New Jersey diner appears unchanged since the 1960s. Most places like this long ago were sold to developers for more lucrative use, like a resort or condo development.

There's a double-horseshoe lunch counter with lime green stools at the entrance, which make good perches for catching some local flavor. Else head over to the dining room, complete with '60s style green and yellow paper placemats.

The crowd is mostly blue-collar Bermudians, families, and occasionally some foreigners looking for inexpensive and unfussy eats.

Complaints: the servers are not Bermudian. There are few healthy options on the menu. There's a limited breakfast menu but a wide range of all the usual favorites on the lunch and dinner menus.

Note: no gratuity is added to the bill, but it is proper to leave 15% on the table.

Reservations are not necessary.

My friend and I had lunch here in November while visiting Bermuda. It was only a couple blocks from where we were staying so it was an easy walk. The atmosphere was very casual. A lot of families and the after-church crowd. We both got hamburgers with friends and the food was very delicious. Although a bit on the expensive side, it was a decent place for a bite to eat.

If you don't mind being cold this is a good run of the mill place to grab a bite to eat. A good menu ranging from sandwiches to full dinners. No longer as cheap as it used to be. The biggest thing I have against them is their service charge on the bill where they quote three different levels of service charge going as high as 25% which I think is over the top.
